“Apple opened its first San Francisco store in February of 2004, and now, nine years later, it’s planning an overhaul — by moving to a new location,” John Paczkowski reports for AllThingsD.
“Apple recently submitted plans to San Francisco’s planning commission for a brand-new retail store at Stockton and Post on Union Square — home to many of the city’s luxury retailers,” Paczkowski reports. “The new building (currently a Levi’s flagship store, which is moving to Market Street this summer) will be 24,819 square feet, about 45 percent larger than Apple’s current store at Stockton and Ellis.”
Paczkowski reports, “Apple figures it will require about 400 employees to operate, 50 more than its predecessor. And, as you can see from the embedded images, the store will boast a fresh design — big, open floors and lots of glass (imagine a massive, translucent Mac mini).”
